What is F_AIR Florence Artist in Residence?

F_AIR is at the forefront of the contemporary art system and invites artists to reside within the school premises during specific time periods. During their stay, artists interpret the city and its surroundings through the expressive means of their art. They will exchange ideas with students, with fellow artists in town, and with professionals within the art world. They will work both as artists and academic professors and by the end of their stay they will present their project at a solo exhibition. The program at F_AIR is the innovative concept for contemporary art in Florence. Creativity and enthusiasm are its genius loci. F_AIR and FUA School of Fine Arts seek to keep alive the spirit of the place, and its present appearance is designed to renew its special atmosphere.
